Organic fruits and vegetables are both delicious and healthy, far surpassing normal supermarket produce. Instead of buying from stores, why not grow your own? This article will show you how to plan an organic garden right in your own yard.
Starting off your garden with healthy soil can be the best defense against those pesky garden bugs. Healthy plants are naturally more resilient against pests and disease. High-quality soil that is low on chemicals is key. It’s the first thing you should think about when planning on growing your garden.
Transfer your favorite plants inside so they survive the winter. You should probably save the most resistant or expensive plants. Carefully dig near the roots and transfer those plants into a flower pot.
If beautiful flowers throughout the warmer months are important to you, make sure you put bulbs into the ground. Bulbs are generally very simple to grow and hearty, as well; they will continue to grow for years. Remember that different bulbs will bloom at all different times of the year, so if you are careful to choose the right bulbs, you will see blooms in the early spring, and have flowers all the way to late summer.
Do not mow your lawn close to the bottom. By leaving your grass a little taller, you are allowing it to become stronger, as the roots grow stronger and deeper. When you cut the grass too short, the roots are often not deep enough, which causes your lawn to have dry patches of brown, discolored grass.
When you boil vegetables, use the leftover water on your potted plants. Add coffee grounds or tea leaves to the soil of acid-loving plants like rhododendron and gardenia. Chamomile tea is a good remedy against fungus.
